After about 2 years of growing on my patio, I have finally decided to set up a small commercial operation. I have met a number of "expert" consultants. They all were either system supply companies (they all wanted to sell me on their systems and support) or acedemics/professors, who had a ton of technical knowledge, but have never grown anything themselves on a commercial scale! Either way, I am not confident that I am going to get practical guidance to set up a larger operation that would be commercially successful. I do know that there are a few consultants somwhere who are actually growers themselves. If anyone knows of one, please send me their information. Thank you!!!
